Simple. Quick. Delicious. This isn’t much of a recipe but it’s a very delicious and healthy side dish that is super easy to make. Adding just a touch of butter made the beans so delicious without being greasy. I loved the crunch and flavor of the toasted almonds and so did my kids. I served this side dish with the Chicken, Mushrooms and Orzo and my House Salad for a very tasty meal.Green Beans with Almond Slivers: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
